Celebrity Justice: Paris Out of the Slammer
June 7, 2007 1:55 PM
Can’t say I’m surprised that celebrity heiress Paris Hilton is out of jail, serving only three days of her 23-day sentence. I’m surprised she was in for even one night. Now the 26-year old star of Fox’s reality series “The Simple Life,” has to stay at home for 40 days wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet, which probably came from Tiffany’s.
Oh the hardship of it all. Poor thing got out because of an “unspecified medical problem.” Well at least she’s home and presumably not driving while under the influence, nor set loose, for now, on the unsuspecting law abiding citizens of LA.
The good news is we won’t have to hear and see her travails in jail on the cable news nets for the next 20 days. The bad news is I’m sure some creative cable network will come up with a special about her short-lived stay in jail. After all, The Biography Channel whipped one up about Anna Nicole Smith shortly after she died. And don’t bother watching the news tonight. We might have lost another dozen soldiers in Iraq, but that news will be overshadowed by this ridiculous moment in a spoiled brat’s sensational life.
Why are we such voyeurs?
